Reusable Food Wraps – A Very Good Thing – Especially During Plastic Free July

….keep your fridge, lunchbox and food chain plastic free with this great, locally made solution, ‘Honeywrap’ Reusable Food Wraps. 

The passionate people behind ‘Honeywraps’ are three good friends,  Tara, Jo and Amy.  As mums, they have always tried to do their bit for the environment….cloth nappies, reusable bags at the supermarket, walking instead of driving. They began their ‘Honeywrap’ business after one of their children bought home a piece of beeswax covered fabric they’d made as a school project to use as an alternative to plastic wrap.

When they couldn’t find anywhere in New Zealand to buy something similar, they started started making them for themselves and ‘Honeywrap’ was born. Each ‘Honeywrap’ is still individually hand made in New Zealand for you with love and care by Tara, Jo and Amy.

These reusable fabric squares coated in beeswax, keep food fresh, are non-toxic and reduce landfill. A mandatory item for anyone conscious of the impact our consumer choices create for the environment. We are currently sourcing a vegan version made with vegetable wax for you too.

The beeswax, tree resin and jojoba used to make these wraps are natural preservatives. The organic cotton infused with this mixture allows your food to breathe and therefore last longer.

The beeswax blend combines to create a tacky cloth which can be shaped around food and dishes to seal and preserve goodness. By firmly pressing the ‘Honeywrap’ around your food or bowl the warmth of your hands activates the mixture and the cloth will stick to itself.

With proper care a ‘Honeywrap’ should last up to one year. Over time and use the tackiness of the wrap will reduce, however they can still work effectively to wrap food. You may need to hold more firmly and slightly longer when molding over a bowl.

Save plastic from going into landfill and the oceans – NZ made – NOT oven, dishwasher or microwave safe – hand wash with cold water and eco-detergent – made with organic printed cotton – non toxic
